I went through the same thing and from guys I've spoken with I can tell you I'm not the only one.  The body and brain go through a lot of changes so give it time.  Everybody is different so I can't say how long it should take.  Just give him some time to work on staying sober.  That's the most important thing right now.  Good luck!!!

I think it's normal. I drank for the better part of 20 years and I now that I've been sober for 11 months I realize that I am completely different than I was before when I was drinking. Think of it as your head and body getting rewired and the person needing time to get used to it themselves. Try not to take it personally and try to be supportive of his sobriety. If you can talk about it, ask him how he's feeling. He may be confused about it as well. Best of luck to both of you.

i think that lboogie7729 and punkinhead75 could not have said it better... I would bet my left arm (and i m a leftie.... :) what is going on with your boyfriend is absolutely normal in the context you are giving, so please as the two members are saying, dont or try (i know it can be hard) not to take it personally. the main focus right now should be his sobriety. i wish you two a beautiful story together... and if you two could get some kind of outside perspective (i.e. therapy, group therapy,... might be a plus...) best of luck to you two,
